About Abaco Islands:

The Abaco Islands consist of Great Abaco, Little Abaco and a handful of smaller cays, stretching two hundred miles long in the northern Bahamas.

For centuries, the Abacos have been known for their shipbuilding industries, and are now considered one of the world’s finest boating destinations. With countless cays, bays and islets, these beautiful limestone islands offer unbelievable sailing routes, with calm waters sheltered by the third largest barrier reef on earth.

Marsh Harbour on Great Abaco is the main settlement, known for its animated downtown, while Elbow Cay and Green Turtle Cay showcase stunningly preserved British colonial architecture alongside colourful Bahamian buildings. True to its name, Treasure Cay boasts bountiful golden beaches; one of which is frequently ranked in the world’s top ten by travel guides.

There are a couple of weekly ferry routes interconnecting the nation’s capital, Nassau, on the island of New Providence, and Sandy Point on Little Abaco.
